So I had an idea at GHC, asked a few people but never got an official answer so I thought it would be fun to ask here. If an NPC, say Sage Salon, has an ability/spell they can only use a fixed number of times, say arcane sight, could you use an ability like Restore Spell or Restore Power to give the NPC another casting?

Now Granted restore spell says it targets a Player, so based on that I would assume technically no, Non-Player-Character would be out, but I would argue that the rule of cool should apply since something like a 3rd arcane sight is less powerful then a second Lightning Strom in room 7.

Besides, at this point I feel like we've run with Salon Long enough to consider them part of the party ;)

Hmmm, on one of my runs the Sage with both a player in the party and our NPC. But its not like we needed more than one casting of the spell.

Let them trap us. We have our swords. - Elric of Melnibone.

You try to get them to play the game, but all they want to do is play the rules. - Ardak Kumerian

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend - Faramir
